Rafael Benitez has backed Momo Sissoko to come good again.Sissoko has had a poor run of form recently but Rafa Benitez has backed the Mali international to play his way out of it and show again that 'Momo is boss'.
"I see he is giving everything to play well. For our supporters that is the first thing any player must do," said the Liverpool manager.
"Momo was a key player when we won 82 points in the Premier League. Now we need to give him time to allow him to regain his confidence.
"I spoke to him after the Marseille game and said 'keep going.' He knows how I work because I managed him when he was 18 at Valencia, where he won the league and UEFA Cup with me.
"He knows I have a lot of confidence in him. I will push him and I will try to improve him."
